Readers say having just 2 kids per family will not help China's cause

A communique was issued by the ruling Communist Party following a four-day meeting in Beijing to chart the country's plans for the next five years.

China changes controversial one child policy, to two per family

It was reported that the republic of China has put an end to the controversial one child per family policy, now allowing two per couple.

Despite being the world's second largest economy after the US, there have been growing concerns over China's ageing population since the one child policy was introduced in 1980.

The radical family planning policy was adopted to reduce the country's high birth rate, which has been very effective in minimising the population until now.

We asked Pulse readers if the increase from one child to two per family would help China with their gender imbalance and work force problems.

Pulse readers agree that the new policy will do little to help China out with their problems.
